Sarah Palin to join SNL 40th Anniversary

Sarah Palin is returning to SNL for the 40th Anniversary Special which airs on Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. She joins a star-studded cast which includes former SNL members Eddie Murphy, Chevy Chase, Steve Martin and Bill Murray.

PEOPLE confirmed that Palin had indeed said yes to SNL and producer Lorne Michaels today.

Palin was famously spoofed on the show by Tina Fey during the 2008 presidential race and she even appeared on the show as a good sport.

Palin is still active in politics as the unofficial (or is it official) voice of the Tea Party.
